Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Bobby...GYPSIES?

I just got done reading Bury me standing by Isabel Fonseca (a good read), the book is a story of Gypsies and their culture and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on this possibly being a topic of intrest to Bobby. I found several of what seemed like vague nods perhaps to this book in some of his Ratdog stuff.....dunno, just wandering

I just love that Ratdog stuff. I guess they're scheduled for an appearance on Conan O'Brien tonight. No telling what Bob has in store. Maybe something new. It's been years since that Evening Moods release. Wasn't too long after that when I got to meet him for the first time and told him how much I enjoyed the CD. A very warm and gracious guy, he politely thanked me as he autographed a handful of souveniers and the like. And I can't help thinking that he slept a little easier that night knowing that Evening Moods had met with my approval.


ha ha



Know how you feel, though. The reason I clarified my reply was for getting what I perceived as kind of a snide response to something I posted recently in which I was told words to effect of "Your inquiry was of such an elementary nature that it warranted being ignored." Elitist bullshit if you ask me.

Having never read the book, I wouldn't know, but it does share the same title as one their songs. Or am I being just too freakin' obvious?

Just tryin' to chat here, people. Just tryin' to chat.
